HARRISBURG -- Two Harrisburg teachers and one administrator got hit with slime and pies to the face by students, all for a good cause.
According to East Side School third-grade teacher and student council co-sponsor Megan Lemonds, students had a special fundraiser for the month of November.
Contributions would be made in the name of Assistant Principal Eric Witges, fifth-grade teacher Jake Dixon or fifth-grade teacher Phil Nyberg. The donations were earmarked for the Christian Community Compassion Center, better known as 4C's.
The "winning" teacher would be coated in slime at the end of the month.
It turned out that the other two weren't off the hook, either.
As students filed into the East Side gymnasium, Lemonds, along with fellow teachers Lori Porter and Katie Berry, rallied the audience, asking who they wanted to see "slimed."
After some student awards, Lemonds announced that students raised $775 to be donated to 4C's. She also noted that Witges and Nyberg would get a pie in the face, and Dixon would be slimed.
For Nyberg, the occasion was a little extra special: Thursday was his birthday, and his son Brody got to hit him with the whipped cream pie.
4c's board member and secretary Patty Carlson received the check on behalf of the organization, thanking the students teachers for their hard work. She said the funds would be put to good use.
